Choose your ball gown!

Okay, I could not resist replying to this post on author Kaye Dacus's website! I LOVE vintage fashion, I think I was supposed to choose ONE dress to wear to a ball from any time period I wanted...well that didn't happen! It took me a while to narrow down my choices but here they are! Some are not ball gowns but I thought they were so pretty I had to post them! What do you think? What would your dream dress from another time look like?
